Panic Attack Symptoms-Treatment

Panic attacks come in many shapes and sizes.  They can last a few seconds or several days.  The attack can have a sudden onset or build over several hours.  We may experience acceptable discomfort or feel like our body and head are in the grip of a vice that's getting tighter and tighter.  For some of us, panic is triggered by a specific fear or phobia.  See List Of Phobias-Phobia Cures for help.  For others, there is no apparent trigger, panic just happens out of the blue in a variety of circumstances and with varying degrees of embarrassment and pain.  A Panic attack is sometimes an occasional acute episode of an ongoing anxiety...see Symptoms Of Anxiety-Attack to learn more.  Regardless of how you get them, panic attacks are manageable and treatable.  It's possible for you to live a normal life.  This article is designed to get you started down that road.  For more information, here are the most popular books on symptoms and treatment of panic attacks

Panic Attack Symptoms:

At age 29, I'd just been given an important project which meant more responsibility...and more visibility.  It was easy for me to do good work at my desk and discuss things with my boss, but this job required more.  I had to brief management!  The first time I had to brief the director of the supervisor of my boss, it hit me.  The closer it came to my turn, the more I felt it.  At first it was a sense of uneasiness, then trouble breathing, a fear that I was in great danger, I could hear...and feel my heart beating, the sweat on my forehead and hands.  Then my turn came.  Everything in the room turned to a spinning blur.  I could not see the director's face and could barely see the briefing charts in front of me.  I was having a panic attack.  Somehow I struggled through it and survived. 

My only experience with a real panic attack was fairly short-lived...only about 1/2 hour.  I now know this was a relatively mild attack, brought on by fear of failure and fear of public speaking.  There was no real danger, except in my imagination.  Even though the danger is imaginary, severe panic attacks can cause hot flashes, headaches, heart attacks, strokes, asthma attacks, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and unconsciousness.  Panic can cause you to become verbally and even physically abusive.  Some try to compensate for their fear by pushing and bullying others in some way.  You can become addicted to alcohol or drugs trying to numb the feeling.  Very often, panic sufferers will try to hide and avoid situations where others might see their panic.  Unless confronted and overcome, panic causes most people to twist their life into a grotesque shadow of what it could be and what they want it to be.  This is why it's so important to look at the causes and learn to prevent, control and eventually find cures for your panic attacks.
